Country singer-songwriter Chely Wright appeared to be living the Nashville dream. ” And I thought, “I don’t want it that bad.” It was really great to be nominated for the Academy of Country Music’s Best Female Vocalist in ’99-but it was super-duper fine that I didn’t win. She had a sound that won awards and landed her on country charts (her biggest hit: 1999’s “Single White Female”); a writing style that made major stars want to record her songs; and looks that routinely landed her on hot lists (including PEOPLE’s Most Beautiful in ’01).

It scared me because I was hearing the word in church-“homosexual”-and knew it was a building block of sin and evil. But I could also put up a ponytail and play basketball. But there was no way around the gaping wound, the hiding of a homosexual relationship in a highly conservative country music community. I mean, can you imagine having a relationship for that long and having to lie about it? I feel like it’s my birthday, like I’m going to be born.

Around 13, I brokered my deal with God: I’ll go without love; give me music. I was one of these girls who would get up at and curl my hair. My choice was, if I’m going to settle again, I’m going to pick someone I admire and like. Julia [whose marriage had ended] and I tried to reconcile in late 2006.

By then God was saying in my ear, in my heart, “You’re okay with me.” [Growing up] I didn’t feel not genuine. But once I realized he was in love with me, I cut him off. I wish I could have said, “I’m gay, and that’s why I can’t be with you.” I will never, ever do that to another person.

We had a relationship for nine months to a year [around ’00-’01].

that CAM is "Julia" the woman Chely describes in her book as her former secret partner of 12 years.
